Editorial Board, Akron Beacon Journal |
We hope the Ohio Senate won’t miss a historic opportunity to finally solve Ohio’s longstanding K-12 school funding woes.
We normally have reservations about lawmakers making important decisions during the lameduck session.
In this case, it’s taken 23 years for lawmakers and school leaders to build and agree to a plan that fixes a system that’s consistently underfunded Ohio’s schools. That’s more than two decades of lost opportunities for students and residents being asked to pay higher property taxes to avoid cuts to teachers and activities.
